******************************************

On 10/06/20, at about 6:43 AM, the Juneau Police Department received a report of a male being hit by a vehicle in the intersection of Shell Simmons Drive and Glacier Highway. JPD and CCFR responded to assist. The male was identified as 32-year-old Juneau resident Dylan Haisler and he was pronounced deceased at the scene. Next of kin has been notified of the death.

The roadway was shut down for several hours while the police department's major accident response team and detectives conducted an investigation.

Based on early information provided to police, it's believed Haisler exited a vehicle that was still in the roadway of the Shell Simmons and Glacier Highway intersection and was struck soon afterwards by a Maroon Ford F-350 that was travelling East on Glacier Highway. The F-350 was being driven by a 41-year-old male Juneau resident, who was uninjured during the crash.

This case is still under investigation. Anyone with information regarding this crash, or the events leading up to it, is encouraged to contact the Juneau Police Department on the business line at (907) 586-0600. Anonymous tips can be made through JuneauCrimeline.com.
